Tip

This is a HUGE cake and is quite thick when initially blending. Use your spatula to hand mix to begin with then use it to assist until the batter runs by itself.

    This cake was amazing
    i made this cake using gluten free flour and reduced the sugar by about 150 gm and included sultanas as well. It turned our really good. But will definitely try this again using almond flour instead.

  • Great cake! as it is more

    Submitted by Baykay1984 on 9. January 2016 - 18:15.

    Great cake! as it is more like two cakes and contains two cakes worth of sugar, I don't see the issue, however I have made it with 160g of raw sugar and 30g of stevia which worked great. Slight sweetener flavour, but people who didn't know it was in there couldnt taste it, especially as the pineapple flavour covers it. Also great at a fondant decorated cake as it is quite structurally sound

    Delicious. So moist and yummy. I omitted the walnuts as I didn't have any. I used a combination of canola and rice bran oil as that's what I had. I made my own version of the frosting. My family said it was better than a cafe cake.

    Submitted by pkwilly on 26. April 2015 - 20:25.

    Saxonwoman...it's cake...it's not intended to be healthy...but to solve your issue Don't Make It! I'm a bit annoyed that you have chosen to give this a 1 star rating when you never even baked it! Everyone else has stated how delicious thes cake is...and it is...unfortunately you will never experience it's sublime flavours. Even though there is a lot if sugar it makes a very large cake too!

    Great flavour and super moist.  Love this carrot cake.  It does make a lot. I made a loaf tin cake, square tin cake and 12 muffins with this mixture. I haven't made the icing yet.  We've devoured half the muffins already and they weren't iced. We like them plain.  Thanks for sharing.

    460g of sugar!!! Woah!! That's a massive amount! And another 310g for the icing. Come on guys - 770g of suagr in one cake is unbelievably unhealthy!!!

    This cake was delicious. I used coconut oil and only 300g of sugar, next time I will drop to 250g. I baked in a large ring tin Thank you for sharing  tmrc_emoticons.)

  • This cake was beautiful,

    Submitted by Kim.Long on 10. February 2015 - 09:50.

    This cake was beautiful, everyone I shared with loved it.  It does make a huge cake so if baking in a large pan you will need to increase the cooking time to at least 60-70 mins. I also only added half the vanilla bean paste to the icing and added the juice of half a lemon for the extra tang.  Was delicious.

    Will make this one often.

    I'm so glad to hear that wesnangwilson! I was really after a carrot cake that was like Sarah Lee's and thought this one might do the trick so I converted it.  Unfortunately it's not like Sarah Lee but it's REAL good!
